Ernie Hudson Hosts 'Ghostbusters' Screening at Upcoming Motor City Comic Con

Excitement is brewing among film enthusiasts and comic con attendees as Michigan native, Ernie Hudson, is set to host a special screening of the iconic 1984 film 'Ghostbusters' at the Motor City Comic Con this year. This unique event will take place at Emagine Novi on May 17 at 7:30 PM. It promises to be more than just a film screening as it will feature an exclusive Q&A session with Hudson himself, a beloved actor from the Ghostbusters franchise.

The screening is nested within the broader schedule of the Motor City Comic Con, taking place from May 17 to May 19 at Novi's Suburban Collection Showplace. Hudson's decision to host this event highlights his strong connection to both the film and his home state, creating a perfect blend of local pride and Hollywood glamour. The event is specifically designed for the attendees of the comic con, with tickets priced at $40, offering an accessible opportunity for fans to dive deep into the world of one of their favorite paranormal comedies.

Every ticket to the screening not only guarantees a seat but also includes participation in the pre-screening Q&A. This session will allow fans to gain insights into Hudson's experiences and stories behind the making of 'Ghostbusters'. It's a rare opportunity for die-hard enthusiasts to interface directly with one of the film’s pivotal characters.

In conjunction with Hudson's screening, Helen Hunt will captivate the audience the following day with her own movie magic. On May 18, at 8 PM, she will host a special screening of the 1996 blockbuster 'Twister' also at Emagine Novi. This event similarly combines the thrill of classic cinema with the personal touch of a star-led discussion, as Hunt will share her experiences from filming one of the most intense storm-chasing movies ever made.

Such unique, celebrity-hosted film screenings are part of what makes the Motor City Comic Con a standout event. It not only celebrates comic books and pop culture but also bridges the gap between film fans and the stars they admire. This year's enhanced focus on interactive experiences with film stars underlines the con's evolution from a traditional comic book gathering to a broader celebration of multimedia entertainment, drawing enthusiasts from all corners of the nerdy spectrum.

Tickets for both screenings are available through the Emagine Novi website. Given the special nature of these events and the limited seating capacity of the venue, early booking is highly recommended to avoid disappointment. The anticipation surrounding these events is high, and they are expected to be a highlight of this year's comic con schedule.

Fans looking to attend the Motor City Comic Con and these exclusive screenings should prepare for a memorable experience. The chance to see beloved films in a new light, complemented by stories and insights from the stars themselves, provides a deeper appreciation of these cinematic masterpieces. As attendees gather in Novi this May, they are in for a treat filled with nostalgia, excitement, and unique entertainment that goes beyond the screen.
